Boston College is coming off a rough season and will need to make some major improvements to be better than last year. You can take a look at BetQL to see if BC has a chance to hit on their college basketball over under this season

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s third annual college basketball season preview series.  Two years we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  Last year, we were slightly more aggressive and expanded to 111 teams in 111 days and will do so again as we look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

We will rank the 75 power conference teams and top 36 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

With one of the youngest rosters in all of college basketball last season, the Boston College Eagles understandably struggled last season.  With eight freshmen now becoming sophomores, BC brings more experience to the floor this season but that won’t necessarily translate into more wins.
